Big Brothers Big Sisters Mentoring Through Music
September 9th, 2013
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County (BBBSBC) is proud to announce the release of a new children’s CD, “Absolutely, Positively Getting Along.” The 27 track compilation CD features national and international artists, including Pete Seeger and Lorre Wyatt, Julian Lennon, Robbi K and Bakithi Kamulo, Melba Moore, and Eric Bazilian, among others. This one-of-a-kind CD includes poems, spoken word pieces and a variety of songs. It gives children the advice they need on how to be a buddy, feel connected, and build friendships. The musicians, actors, and poets involved with this project act as audio “Big Brothers and Big Sisters” to children everywhere.
The album’s message mirrors the work being done by hundreds of volunteer Big Brothers and Big Sisters nationally. Each recording track covers a different topic, some showcasing popular activities enjoyed by “Bigs” and “Littles” such as bowling and fishing, others cover conflict resolution or appreciating life’s special moments. All are presented in a variety of mediums including folk music, rock music, rap, poetry and comedy.
“We are honored to be involved in this project,” said Ursula Raczak, CEO of BBBSBC. “Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs have helped so many children over the years.”
“While we are thrilled with the caliber of talent that recorded for us, we are excited to have worked with Grammy award winning producers Steve Pullara, Jim Cravero, Gloria Domina, and Patrick Robinson on this project,” continued Raczak.
“All of the artists involved in this project see the need for long term mentoring programs,” said Jim
Cravero, East Coast Recording Studio. “As producers, it’s always amazing to see a project come
together with so many talented people all geared towards sending a great message to today’s children.”
This CD was done on a fully volunteer basis. 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of the CD will go to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County.
